Belief is irrelevant.
There are no gods of any kind.
What is believed does not produce what is not.
There are many different ways to consider God. I do not believe in the God of Abraham (the Abrahamic Tradition), because the bible is so full of contradictions about him – indeed Yahweh contradicts himself.But what if the Universe is the body of God? We then have no need for a punisher of sins, or for theologies of redemption and salvation. Natural law is the way it is, the way of Nature.Seeing God this way allows me to feel the presence of the holy in deep forests, in the middle of rivers, floating on a lake, and listening to the wind speak to me over the desert. It\’s a poet\’s view, but there\’s nothing wrong with poetry.
It seems that in essence what is being said is that we are our own god, or at least part of the whole. How can anyone except theists argue that point? I suppose that when most people hold to a concept of god, they are thinking of something separate, apart from them. That is what my reference is to. There are no conscious entities involved with the day to day affairs of insignificant humans, on a planet which is one of many planets. Unless of course, our unconscious minds rule this realm.
What this entry is stating is simple, just because you believe something to be true does not make that something true. Simple belief does not produce a god. The truth exists and is unchanged by what someone believes. There are no gods. Just because someone believes there are gods does not diminish the truth. Also, believing there are no gods does not change or add to the truth. The only relevance of belief is the result of belief. It produces hatred, violence, and paranoia.
